Multiple masters of a component
This might sound like a crazy idea.. but since the introduction of components I have felt the need to have multiple instances of a master component on the canvas.
Problem: Say I have an artboard with a master component (a collection of master components for overview). In another artboard I have an instance of the component where it sits in context. Today I often start editing the instance component by mistake which just makes overrides to the component when I actually want to just update the component globally and in context. Instead of having the instance of the component I would like to have a duplicate of the master (which of course is live updated with the other master instance).
So to summarize: I would like to choose wether a copy of a symbol should have a direct link to the master or if should be an instance that you can override.

I would like to see this as an option as well. I would like to have multiple Masters so that I can see and edit multiple states of a component.
For example, if there is a component with and On and Off state, I could copy the master, set one state to On and the other to Off and compare them as I design. Then in my final app, I can toggle these states as usual. This feature would just help out with the design process.
